This 1970’s leisure centre has undergone a £9m refurbishment to bring the facilities up to current standards and a new library has been added to the building. Two new swimming pools have been provided with the latest energy saving technologies. The external walls have also been over-clad to dramatically improve the thermal performance and the building connected to the Hackbridge Energy Network, a sustainable district heating system powered by waste landfill gas in order to cut CO2 emissions.
A new electrical control panel has been installed adjacent to the main UKPN Transformer at the rear car park area, which serves a sub main panel internal to the building which in turn also serves around ten local distribution boards.
These sub-metered distribution boards control everything from the lighting, local power, mechanical plant, PA System, along with ancillary services including Fire Alarms, Pool Panic alarms, data networks etc.
A range of new and existing car park lighting has been set to work, and controlled by use of photocells, time clocks and over ride switches, both on the building and around the car park areas.
CCTV has been installed internally and externally for protection of staff and members of the public.
